There are 10 neighborhoods in Tequisquiapan, Queretaro, that surround a central plaza in the downtown area. This area is known as Centro. There is a large plaza at it’s core, Miguel Hidalgo Plaza, where there stands the town’s principal church, Inglesia Santa Maria de la Asuncion. Surrounding the plaza is the Centro shopping and residential area, where residences mingle with shops seamlessly. This is the main tourist shopping area, and thus has an abundance of unique shops and artisan malls where you can find all the local craftsmen’s work. Centro is always busy, road are tight, and parking next to impossible, especially on weekends. We suggest you opt for a quick taxi ride to and from the main plaza and walk the immediate areas surrounding it. To explore the downtown area fully would take two days minimum. So let’s take a quick tour of some of what you will see.
